Hello all.

I've been waiting for my poundages to something respectable before posting again. However, it's now obvious that it's going to be a bit of a long haul:

e.g.

Bench press has gone from 140 x 9 to 140 x 1.
Squat has gone from 182.5 X 8 to 180 X 1.
Lost 1" off arms, 2" off chest

There's no continuity with my old journal, so I might as well start a new one. I've been going in regularly for a couple of weeks, and I'm hoping I've ht a new groove.

Here we go:

Squats

70 X 5
120 X 4
150 X 2
170 x 1
180 x 1
190 X 1
165 X 2

165 x 2

Bench Press

100 X 2
120 x 2
130 x 1

120 x 4
120 x 4

Pulldowns

80 X 5
85 x 5
90 X 5

Thanks, Tony.

Thursday 6th May

Just a few fronties tonight. 150kg is OK, all things considered. I still have a couple of square cm of muscle that aren't hurting after the onslaught of training five days out of the last six.

Front squats

70 X 5
70 X 5
100 X 2
130 X 1
140 X 1
150 X 1
120 X 2
120 X 2
120 X 2

Barbell curls, done in the squat rack just to be perverse and piss off anyone like me that hates people who curl in the squat rack, but seeing as no one else gives a s**t, it was a wasted gesture

45 X 7
45 X 6
45 X 5

Saturday

A bit too much, too soon. Pulled my shoulder front squatting on Thursday, so I had some problems with squatting, and "heavy" benching was out. Had to settle for close grip bench press and watch the poundages.

Max squat currently at 85% of best. Unhappy

Friday, May 14th

A nice improvement on bench over the last two weeks. 130 felt much more comfortable. Shoulder was less troublesome. Once I get to doubles on 140, I will feel like I'm getting somewhere.

Strength is coming back more slowly on squats, but there has been a modest improvement.
